Residency 5
Residency 5

The first program of its kind in the American theatre

Launched during the 2012 inaugural season at The Pershing Square Signature Center, Residency 5 guarantees each playwright three productions of new plays over the course of a five-year residency. This is the first program of its kind in the American theatre, and it enables a diverse community of playwrights to build bodies of work. By committing to producing three premieres during a five-year period, Signature seeks to support and enhance each playwright’s method of developing new work; the Residency 5 program celebrates the path from the written page to a fully-realized production.
